On September 13, the campaign sent a multi-sector sign-on letter to appropriators urging their FY23 spending bills to include President Biden’s budget request to expand Housing Choice Vouchers to an additional 200,000 households. Rental assistance is a critical tool for helping people with the lowest incomes afford decent, stable homes, and avoid homelessness. But due to chronic under-funding and disinvestment, only 1 in 4 households eligible for a federal housing voucher will get the help they need.

Signatories include leading national organizations from an array of sectors, such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, Children’s Defense Fund, Children’s HealthWatch, Church World Service, Civil Rights Corps, Food Research & Action Center, Justice in Aging, National Association of Social Workers, National League of Cities, National LGBTQ Task Force Action Fund, National Women’s Law Center, NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice, Union for Reform Judaism, and ZERO TO THREE.

The FY23 spending bill presents an opportunity to obtain a tremendous return on investment by expanding Housing Choice Vouchers to an additional 200,000 households.
